September 2018

Wanderlust editor, Pheobe Smith, trialled ten lightweight summer walking boots from the biggest footwear brands in the UK, to find out which model offered the best comfort, support and versatility for travellers. 

Oboz Sawtooth Mid was awarded the Best in Test. Smith says as soon as you put them on, not only do you feel the benefit of the wedge of the rubber on the sole, but you can tell that the insole is more moulded, instantly offering great support.

How does Oboz achieve this level of support and comfort? Its the combination of a dual density EVA, nylon shank midsole which has a good amount of stiffness but remains flexible and the 3D moulded heel counter built for superb heel fit.

Underneath, the lugs are some of the best here - deep, aggressive and well -spaced - and the heal break is pronounced, helping you on muddy descents. The Sawtooth Mid outsole is a classic, designed to shed mud, offer intense traction, and maintain stability. 

Full review can be found in the July/August issue of Wanderlust.
